Be Your Own Souvenir

blablabLAB

ES, 2010-1


Be Your Own Souvenir connects street users, arts and science, linking them to under-lying alternative spaces and their own realities. The audience are released from established roles in a perspective exchange: spectator-performer, artist-tourist, observer-object.

The user is both producer and consumer in this unique art installation and project. Be Your Own Souvenir invites the viewer to perform the role of and become a human statue, with a free personal souvenir as a reward: a small figurine of the participant, printed three-dimensionally from a volumetric reconstruction of their form, generated by the use of a structured light scanner.blablabLAB is a collaborative collective structured around transdisciplinary collaboration. They imagine strategies and create tools to make society face its complex reality (urban, technological, alienated and hyper-consumerist). It works without preset formats, approaching the knowledge generation, property and diffusion of it.
